Our Grand Opening event was held on 20th May 2023 as an opportunity to thank our sponsors and everyone who has helped so far, however, the garden is not officially open to the community as yet. There is still some construction to complete and we hope to hold a Spring Opening for the whole community to come along and see, feel, hear, smell and taste what the garden is all about. But… we’re excited to be holding the first International Community Gardens Day event on Sunday 26th November from 10am to 5pm. We hope you can join us.
Thank you to Moreton Bay Regional Council for the installation of the concrete at Beachmere Community Garden. This surface will ensure that the garden is accessible to everyone in the community – something that is important to us and obviously to MBRC as well.
We thank Karen from Beachmere History and Research for putting us in touch with the Beachmere Community Association, which resulted in our group re-designing the gardens at the Community Hall in Progress Ave Beachmere.
We have also held a wonderful Neighbour Day event in Beachmere where representatives of groups from all over the Moreton Bay region joined us for a day of discussion on inclusion and a great opportunity to get to know our neighbours!
Thank you to Moreton Bay Regional Council for supporting this event and for providing amazing refreshments. Cr. Booth offered his apologies as he was previously committed but we carried on the tradition of ‘holding the basket of goodies’ with our special guest Ms. Ali King MP taking up the challenge!
Special thanks to Ms. King for attending and for the generous gift of the garden trolley (shown in photos below). This will be such a useful item for our garden – and has already been put to use!
